Happy Saturday Folks and welcome to the first day of July! Last week was a good week for Bitcoin and this week started off great as well, then out of no where it drops below $30K briefly; the fact that we are still above $30K says a lot. The best performing asset in the past 7 days was $SOL - up 19.88% and is at position #9 on Coinmarketcap.com. Last week the Fear and Greed Index was at 59 and today it's 58.

Most covered news this week was the Multichain hack. Cross-chain router Multichain developers confirmed an exploit that impacted $130 million in user-supplied tokens and cautioned users against using its service. The Podcast of the Week would have to go to Bankless as Raoul Pal answers the question if the bear market is almost over.

I've been saying the bear market was over once we crossed back above $20K; after dipping down to $15.7K. It's currently bumping up against overhead resistance around $30.3K and if it loses $30K it appears that $28.7K is in play.

Bottom line: As I type Bitcoin is trading at $30,194.11 and for the week (M-F) Bitcoin gained $814.17; week over week it's down $284.30. 

Thanks for reading, watching, and listening with me each and every week!
